I do not model Australian trains and more interested in N scale USA these days but I just could not resist buying a 4 car V set in the latest NSW Trainlink livery. It was actually a toss up between a Scale Trains N Scale Union Pacific Gas Turbine and the HO V set. Guess I will have to wait until the trouble and strife forgets about the V set purchase before getting the turbine. Actually the V set is not that all un-American and similar to the loco hauled double deck cars used in New Jersey and Long Island. Well Comeng had the contract to buid them but went bust.

My V set arrived today and it is a good as any plastic HO model supplied by the US manufacturers/importers etc. Well done Auscision. But gee, it would have been nice in brass plated with nickel silver, but that would be at least 4 times the price.

Will we ever see the Victorian VP & PH vans? Announced in April 2006, CAD drawing released in Feb 2009. On the bright side if/when they do appear no one can complain they didn't have enough time to save up for them. Laughing

Hi

I see in the AMRM magazine an update from Auscision regarding a number of re runs coming up in 2018. B, N, 422 and 73, some with new liveries completed since they were originally modelled.

Well good luck to the hoard who are probably already buried in the stand.

Has anybody else had an issue getting in contact with Auscision?

I contacted them a couple of weeks ago regarding an order I'd placed and was advised to send an e-mail- which I sent in the first week of August and so far haven't heard a thing back from them.

They look awesome. I hope Auscision change the wheels from shiny silver to black.

There's a reply from Auscision in the FB comments from a query confirming the wheels are blackened as per all their other models.

The numbers on the model of 847 are wrong.

The last six 830 class built, 847 to 849 and 868 to 870 were built in 1969 for standard gauge.
AE Goodwin used the stencils used for NSWGR locomotive numbers on these six locomotives.
The shape of the "8" in particular is incorrect for these six locomotives.

I don't believe any of these six were ever repainted in their original colours.
847 to 849 were leased to the NSWPTC for some years in their original paint.

It isn't as if any of this is news. Trainorama had the correct lettering on the model of 869 which I have.

Peter,

Perhaps you should take a look at a photo of 847 before making such foolish statements.  The photos I have clearly show that 847 to 849 had the square shaped eight, as correctly shown on the Auscision sample.  As you have pointed out 868 to 870 had a different rounded 8, however a quick look through my photo collection suggests that 868 to 870 were the only 830s to have these style numbers.  

Maybe compare apples with apples before making definitively incorrect statements!

Speaking of incorrect numbers, I purchased V49 in NSW Trainlink livery and whilst I am very pleased with the models, the consist of V49 is incorrect. I worked on V49 up the mountains the other day and noted the power cars are all DJM's not DIM's as provided by Auscision. Even the trailer cars are incorrect. Whilst I realise that Auscision may have developed the model from the prototype information to hand at the time it was decided to manufacture the models, I just wonder why they did not provide chopper power cars in the latest livery? Even the other choice is all DIM cars.

Perhaps NSW Trainlink changed the cars around?

"Auscision Models will be attending this weekends Sydney Model Railway Exhibition at Liverpool. We will have a new unannounced livery available for our recently released Butter Box Container re-run. 2 new unannounced locomotive samples will be on display over the weekend along with some of our 442 Class Locomotive, 48 Foot Container & 46’6” Reefer Container painted samples.
We will also have all HO Scale Locomotives on sale for $250.00 each (excluding C44-35). Sale is only valid for locomotives purchased from Auscision at the 2017 Sydney Model Railway Exhibition and only applies to exhibition stock on hand." - via https://www.facebook.com/auscisionmodels/

I predict the butterbox will be a lime green "Bore" livery.
